So, I was doing some thinking yesterday, and (among other things) determined that I needed to find something special to read with Katrina. I hadn't decided just what yet.
What should I see on my blog roll this morning, but a post from Karla at Ramblin' Roads about a reading challenge. Now I haven't done terribly well at keeping track of reading challenges this year. But this one is short and sweet.
And --- dare I confess this? -- I have never read a book by Maud Hart Lovelace, though I have (as an adult) heard of her. So, I just put Betsy-Tacy on hold at the library, and I am going to snuggle with my daughter this month, and read it to her.
The Challenge linked back to some information about the author... I was certainly clueless that she is a "local" author (Mankato, MN). This reminds me of how pathetic my school library was. Why was I never introduced to Betsy-Tacy when I was growing up?
Anyone else care to join?
